16th final return of the CAF Champions League-ASEC Mimosas – ZESCO United :

Objective: the Qualification

The ASEC Mimosas is in the process of succeeding for the 11th time in 22 editions, a qualification in the pool of Champions league. Any other result that a defeat will be happy this Sunday, March 18, at 4:00 p.m., at the reception of ZESCO United, at the Felicia, as part of the return match of the 16th of the competition.

With its success (0 – 1) at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola, Wednesday 7 March, opposite the ZESCO United, the ASEC Mimosas presents itself as a big favourite for the qualification in the hen phase, this Sunday, during the return home game, at Stade Félix HOUPHOUËT-BOIGNY. A trap match that will have to be addressed with all the concentration and seriousness necessary to achieve the goal of the qualification. 

Despite his defeat at home, ZESCO United did not admit to being defeated yet. Better yet, Zambians are ready to come back and return the coins to the Mimosas: nothing is over. We are able to go to Abidjan, what the ASEC Mimosas did to Ndola, said holding CHEMBO, coach of ZESCO United, at the post-game press conference. ZESCO United conceded a second straight defeat to Nayak FC (3 – 4) in the finals of the Zambia Community Shield (Super Cup). Nevertheless, it remains a very dangerous team, especially when its attackers find themselves in a beautiful day. The JKU FC of Zanzibar, defeated (7 – 0), in the return match of the preliminary round of the Champions League could testify. 

After the experience of the Borgou FC Buffaloes, AMANI Yao and his players are more than ever convinced that no results are acquired in advance. We made 20% of the way to go. The 80% is coming. It is also the most difficult… ZESCO will not come as a resigned victim, “Coach Mimosas pointed out to his players. Everyone expects a different match than Ndola’s on Sunday at Felicia. The stakes are crucial and the battle will be very tough. The Mimos will need this 12th man who are the stockholders to sublimate. All at the FHB Stadium this Sunday to push our favorite team to victory and qualification.
